Everyone has heard someone say that the Democrats are racist, right? If you have, then believe it. Larry Elder is a Republican recall candidate who is facing racial criticism as he campaigns. Elder, on the other hand, has a good sense of humor about it.
“Uncle Tom” has been used a lot to describe conservative Black Americans. Most embrace it. The LA Times wrote that Elder is the “Black face of white supremacy,” and Elder shrugged it off in one tweet. Elder said, “In today’s LA Times. You’ve got to be scared and desperate to play the race card against the brother from South Central.”
Former President Donald Trump got a more significant number of Black American votes than other candidates. More Black American voters cast ballots for Trump than Hilary Clinton. For the Democrat party to put so much blame on Republicans for white supremacy is shocking. President Biden was the politician who was friends with Robert Byrd, and the Democratic party formed the Ku Klux Klan. So, who’s more racist than another?
Regardless of that answer, America has to come together and stop throwing the race card up when they have nothing else to write. The LA Times writer is Erika D. Smith. Smith writes a lot of racially motivated articles. She claims that Ron DeSantis will be harmful to the Black American community. Still, data shows that roughly 50% of Black Americans have been vaccinated, so that DeSantis would give more Black Americans freedom from vaccine mandates. Democrat states would oppress 50% of the Black American community, and this is the problem.
Politicians and journalists don’t use their heads when they make these decisions. The same percentage of White Americans and Black Americans have been vaccinated, but these vaccine passports and mandates. There’s a suggestion that Black Americans vote Democrat and trust politicians and the federal government, but that’s not true. Anything can be made racially motivated.
Smith said, “I won’t lie. Few things infuriate me more than watching a Black person use willful blindness and cherry-picked facts to make overly simplistic arguments that whitewash the complex problems that come along with being Black in America.”
Isn’t that what Smith is doing? Cherry-picking Elder’s race to make a simplistic argument that he’s the “black face of white supremacy?” The worst type of person in politics and journalism is a hypocrite. Smith’s opinion is no longer valid when she uses her tactics and blames others for using the same tactics. The LA Times is crossing boundaries by allowing Smith to write these things. Elder’s skin color makes no difference in his ability to make positive changes in California. If Smith has her way, she’ll ensure everyone skips over Elder’s just because of her statement.
